Pours bright yellow with monster head. Smells of funk, spice and a hint of citrus. Nice light mouthfeel, good carbonation. Flavor is a nice mix of lemon peel, belgian yeast, and some peppery/ginger flavor. Easy drinking and nice beer. This is easily my favorite beer from the big O. I could drink this all day long and the sweet yet light brew is so nice.

The appearance of Hennepin is a light-golden, almost orange color. It is very cloudy and pours with a solid 1.5 inch head. It leaves a nice lacing against the glass.

The smell is a solid wheat scent in the beginning. Hints of cloves, bananas and spices follow closely. It has a very hearty smell.

The taste is fantastic! Really nice balance between the wheat barley, brown sugar malt, bananas, cloves and spices. Balance is a difficult thing to properly achieve, especially with a beer this complex.

Mouthfeel is smooth and crisp and leaves all of the flavors against the tongue after every drink. It is carbonated but finished smooth and dry, giving you the hint that you should drink more!

Overall this is a really solid, well balanced beer that has complexity, drinkability and strength (7.7% ABV). A must try if you are looking for a quality brew.
